Film: Fill the Void

Among the ultra Orthodox world of Tel Aviv's Haredi Jews, Rivka and her daughter Shira are confronted with a dilemma after a death in the family. The actress who plays Libbi Shtisel in Shtisel is a lead in this film! NPR states in their review that “Ambience is everything in this director's gorgeous scene setting. There's nothing remotely monkish or drab about the lavish physicality and rich lighting that infuses a sexually modest subculture with sensual pleasure and ‐ yes ‐ romance. In one achingly lovely scene, Shira squeezes out her grief in the plaintive notes of an accordion as Yochay sways in a hammock, his baby slumbering peacefully on his chest.”
